a letter from the 




"Our lives have been formed, sometimes by 

passive absorption, sometimes through active 

infusion, by an environment that sets Christ 

as its standard. There is no way for any one 

of us to walk out of here unaffected by the 

reality of "Christ above all. " 

These words from senior class 
President David Shifrin's address at 
Vespers before commencement, spo- 
ken on behalf of this year's graduating 
class, are true also for the thousands 
who have been a part of Bryan 
College over its 75-year history as a 
Christian liberal arts college. 

In his address, David expressed 
what it means to practice loving God 
with all our heart, soul, mind, and 
strength when he spoke of his passion 
for Christ and His kingdom and when 
he talked of his striving toward the 
challenges of a Christian life well-lived. 
Daily I am reminded that Bryan's 
desire to educate the mind, inspire the 
heart, and challenge to service is being 
fulfilled as we develop leaders in many 
vocations who are making a difference 
for the Kingdom of Christ. 

My ultimate goal as president is to 
ensure that Bryan's mission of educat- 
ing students to become servants of 
Christ to make a difference in today's 
world is strengthened and enhanced 
through all facets of our college. Bryan 



College excels in her purpose because we remain faithful to our founders' vision 
and realize that only God's wisdom stands the test of time, and we can expect to 
have His blessing only if we are faithful to His Word. 

On that firm foundation, we look with great anticipation to the launching of 
a new school year and to what God has in store for the returning and new stu- 
dents in this exciting 75th Anniversary year when we expect record enrollment of 
750 on our Dayton and Chattanooga campuses. 

Let me urge you to be part of this year's homecoming activities Oct. 1-2. 
Among many other exciting events, you're invited to the unveiling of the life-size 
statue of William Jennings Bryan on the Rhea County Courthouse lawn, where 
you'll enjoy the sound of a 200-voice Bryan College and community choir and 
eat from the 75-foot cake that will be made especially for the occasion. 

This fall marks a major milestone in our college's history with the launching

of our first on-line distance learning courses, created and taught from a biblical 
world and life view by our faculty. These courses will be available to qualified 
home school students for dual enrollment credit as well as to other students who 
desire college credit. 

In addition, the Bryan Center for Critical Thought and Practice, after its suc- 
cessful inaugural seminar this spring, looks forward to several outstanding 2005- 
2006 seminars. Remember to subscribe to the Center's complimentary periodical,

Changed lives, 




challenging the future 






Graduation 2005 

A Bryan College education is special, the college 
/ % declares, because of its foundation on God's Word 
— Z_ -^.and commitment to academic excellence. 

Three seniors, who received their degrees May 7, spoke 
of their experiences at Bryan, which address the quality of 
the college's program. Their words should be an encourage- 

Iment to alumni and a challenge to prospective students. 
Anneli Horner, president of the Student Government 
Association, received the Bachelor of Arts degree in 
Communication Arts. Anneli is from Aurora, Colo., and 
joined the Bryan staff as assistant director of the Worldview 
Teams in June. 

Harold "Bimbo" McCawley is a department manager at 
the La-Z-Boy plant and owns several businesses in Dayton. 






He received the Bachelor of Science degree in Business 
Administration: Business Management through the Aspire 
degree completion program. 

David Shifrin, president of the Class of 2005, spoke at 
the Vespers service the night before graduation. David 
received the Bachelor of Science degree, with high honors, 
in Biology. 

The College Experience 

"For some of us, our years at Bryan have been pre- 
dominantly an extension of our high school education. 
For others, their time here has represented a vast 
change in their lives. 



2 Faithful Brilliance

"Many graduates are about to embark on second and even 
third careers. Many have lived in the surrounding dorms 
while others have driven many miles to come to further their 
education here on the hill." - Bimbo McCawley. 

"Our lives have been formed, sometimes by passive 
absorption, sometimes through active infusion, by an envi- 
ronment that sets Christ as its standard. There is no way for 
any one of us to walk out of here unaffected by the reality of 
'Christ above all.'" - David Shifrin. 

A Bryan College Education 

"What was the purpose? To get a degree? To enable us 
to get jobs and maybe better society? Yes, partly. But there is 
a deeper purpose: it is to teach, equip, and mentor students 
to grieve over the way of the world, and yet to hope, and 
believe, that the reality of reconciliation through the Grace of 
Jesus Christ is true. 

"An education at Bryan College has not hidden us from 
sorrow; it has not sheltered us from doubt or disenchant- 
ment. Our education at Bryan has, in fact, required us to con- 
front the reality of pain to express the reality of salvation." - 
Anneli Horner 



"There is much discussion 
these days about leaders and 
managers. According to popular 
teaching, leaders have the visions 
and set goals for the people and 
organizations to follow. 
Managers handle the day-to-day 
marshaling of 
resources under 
their charge. 

"In our 
Christian life, 
God must be the 
leader of our 
lives, our fami- 
lies, and their 
future. God will 
set the direction, He will estab- 
lish the priorities, and He will 
provide the resources. All we 
must do is be the manager. And 
that, my friends, sums up the 
opportunity we've been afford- 
ed as graduates of Bryan 
College."- Bimbo McCawky

The "Real" World 

"It's not that we are leaving college for 'the real world,' 
because we live in the real world now I despise this phrase for 
it implies that our lives prior to this day were a rehearsal, a 
childish game, and it demeans the story of our growth. 

"Our lives here were very real because we loved here, our 
hearts were broken here, our ideals shattered and our world- 
view challenged here. After today, we will fight new idols, new 
shades of chaos and realize— I pray— that all of the world is real, 



A Shared Heritage 

"To our teachers and professors I want to say 'thank you' 
for your time, your commitment, and for pouring into our 
lives. You have taught us the foundations for our chosen 
majors, and so much more than that. You have taught us 
through your lives of faithfulness and grace, and we know this 
because you welcomed us into your homes and made us a part 
of your family. 

"You taught us so much about grace when you forgave us 
our mediocrity, helped us pick up the broken pieces of our 
effort, and renewed the challenge to try again. You gave us 
something we desperately needed— truth incarnated— and you 
have helped us believe in God. Thank you for your commit- 
ment to us. 

"To our families: Thank you for your support, thank you 
for letting us go." - Annneli Horner 

"Consider then, where these few years factor into our 

lives, how we can claim the people at Bryan as our Christian 

ancestors. The women who keep our campus spotless and 

beautiful live out the idea that a job well done is worth the 

time spent. Our profs, whose open-door policies taught us 

time lost from work to a student who needs to talk isn't real-

sake of the Kingdom. Dr. Livesay s humility in admitting to 

us that mistakes were made showed us the mark of a true man 

and leader. With passion, intensity, and decisiveness he has 

taken hold of this school and drawn it into a new era, and 

shown us that one who leads well does so with Christ-like 

humility and vigor, while standing proudly by his work." 

- David Shifrin 




and it is because we have lived in the real world while at Bryan 
that our decisions mattered and our lives have changed." 
- Anneli Horner 

"So now we take our newly minted degrees and run off to 
real life-which, Dr. [Peter] Held [vice president for student 
life] has assured me, isn't that bad. We have been on both the 
giving and receiving end of ministry and I hope that we will 
make the most of it. Our highest aim is to glorify God and 
enjoy Him forever, says John Piper. With that comes nothing 
short of a royal decree commanding us to use our every fiber 
to pursue God and exhort others to pursue Him. Love as 
Christ loved-unconditionally and with joy-and enjoy life. 
Please friends, have fun. - David Shifrin 



You gave us something we 

desperately needed..." 

- Anneli Horner

Farewell 

"I want to thank you, Class of 
2005, for all your hard work, your 
dedication to academic excellence, 
leadership, to love and forgiveness. 

"We have learned a great deal 
together, 'neath the red and gold.

ken but hopeful, known as those 
who cling to our faith in the reality 
of our personal, loving, just Savior, 
Jesus Christ." - Anneli Horner 

Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Lives ay 
added his commendations to the class: 



"I commend you to unlock the 
secret of a successful life — of yield- 
ing yourselves each day to God's 
word and His hand of guidance. 

"I commend you to God's provi- 
dential hand for care and keeping. 

"I commend you to honoring the 
motto of your alma mater — Christ 
above all — for as you live out that 
motto, you honor Bryan College and 
all who have gone on before you. As 
you do so, you give encouragement 
and support to all who continue on in 



"We have been on

ministry and I hope 

we make the most 

of it." 

-David Shifrin 



the ministry of Bryan College — that 
Bryan would remain faithful to her 
mission for the next 75 years, should 
the Lord tarry. 

"I commend you to living lives 
of excellence — lives of leadership in 
the vocation to which you are called 
and for which you have been pre- 
pared. 

"And finally, and most significant- 
ly, I commend you to the greatest of 
commandments — to love the Lord 
your God with all your heart, all your 
soul, all your strength, and all your 
mind, and to love your neighbor as 
yourself. 

"May God bless you richly in the 
years to come."

years of 




Bryan's 75th anniversary celebra- 
tion continues with three 
events this summer and fall, 
with thought turning toward a 
Homecoming spectacular. 

From July 15 to 17, Bryan College 
and the Dayton Chamber of Commerce 
teamed up to present the annual reen- 
actment of the 1925 Scopes Evolution 
Trial, which led to the founding of the 
organization that established Bryan 
College." 



"While William Jennings Bryan was 
in Dayton for the trial, he remarked that 
this would be a good place for a school 
to teach from a Biblical perspective," 
75th anniversary committee Co-chair- 
man Dr. Richard Cornelius said. 

"When he died five days after the 
trial, a national organization was estab- 
lished to found a college in his memory. 
Five years later, Bryan College opened 
its doors." 

In addition, festival organizers are 



planning to recognize founders and 
incorporators of the college, and to 
hold a book signing for John Perry, co- 
author with Dr. Marvin Olasky, of a 
new book on the Scopes Trial, Monkey 
business: The True Story of the Scopes Trial. 

The Staley Distinguished Christian 
Scholar Lecture series Sept. 19-21, will 
feature presentations by Dr. John 
Woodbridge of Trinity Evangelical 
Divinity School. Dr. Woodbridge will 
speak on the theme "Lessons from our 



timeline 



1920s 



July 1925: William Jennings Bryan 
came to Dayton to support the prose- 
cution in the historic Scopes Evolution 
Trial. While in Dayton, Bryan 
expressed his dream for a college that 
would put Christ above all. On July 26, 
1925, the Great Orator died peacefully 
in his sleep from a stroke. 




September 1925: A national committee 
of over fifty Bryan supporters formed the 
Bryan Memorial University Association, 
designed to establish a university to honor 
the Great Commoner. 

November 1926: After considering loca- 
tions in Washington, DC, and Miami, the 
Bryan Memorial Association purchased 
Matthews Hill in Dayton for $6,654.33. 
Groundbreaking for the university was 
held on November 5, 1926.

Evangelical Heritage." 

Dr. Cornelius said sculptor Cessna Decosimo is making 
progress on the life-size statue of William Jennings Bryan, 
which is to be unveiled during the homecoming Oct. 1 . In 
addition to Bryan alumni and friends, state and national gov- 
ernment leaders have been invited to the program on the 
Rhea County Courthouse lawn. 

Dr. Cornelius said the statue will be unique in that it is 
the only one to depict Mr. Bryan as a young man, about the 
time of his successful congressional campaigns. 

Homecoming festivities will include a 25th reunion for 
the Class of 1980. Class members are invited to contact Tom 



Branson or Tim Cox to help make plans for the event. 

A highlight of homecoming will be the alumni awards 
and concert Oct. 1, when the Alumni of the Year are named, 
and the college Chorale presents a scene from "The Ballad of 
Baby Doe," an opera which features William Jennings Bryan. 

Alumni Coordinator Warren Cole invites alumni to nomi- 
nate individuals for Alumni of the Year recognition by visit- 
ing the Bryan web site at www.bryan.edu/1371.html and fill- 
ing out the nomination form on line. 

Homecoming will conclude with an alumni worship serv- 
ice Sunday morning in Rudd Auditorium, with Dr. John 
Oliver speaking. Dr. Oliver, professor of practical theology at 



193OS-4OS

Bryan Memorial University began class- 
es at the former Rhea Central High 
School.

rooms were not finished, they were 
usable in time for fall classes. 

April 1947: The White Chapel, original- 



ly an army chapel on a base in 
Tullahoma, Tenn., was assembled on 
the Bryan College campus. In addition

provided housing and class- 
room space. 

1950S-60S 

1952: The Administration 
Building was finally com- 
pleted 



Spring 1955-Fall 1956: Students

H.A. Ironside 
Memorial Library was 
dedicated. 

1959: Bryan was 
approved for teacher

Morring likes a 'good dear 



J" ames Morring knew a good deal when he saw it, so he 
decided to help himself and help Bryan College at the 
same time. 
Mr. Morring came to Bryan when the college was located 
in the former Rhea County Central High School, and helped 
build the first floor of Mercer Hall (the Administration 
Building). "I took Bible and general subjects," he said. "I did- 
n't really work toward a degree." 

Originally from Whitwell, Tenn., his family had moved to 
Pennsylvania while he was young. He was invited to come to 
Bryan by his cousin, Ralph Toliver, '37, and lived with the 
Toliver family in Dayton. He also lived in the Octagon on 
campus, and in the Aqua Hotel where he worked to help pay 
for his education. 

Although he left without earning a degree, he met Jeanette 
Lindsey, '39x, who later became his wife. The couple was mar- 

"I feel good that Bryan has kept 

its motto of Christ above all, all 

these years/' 

- James Morring 

ried nearly 65 years before Jeanette died in 1992. 

From the construction job that took him from Bryan, he 
moved into factory work, then into sales, selling aluminum 
pots and pans. The outbreak of World War II diverted alu- 
minum to the war effort, so he took a job at Oak Ridge, 
Tenn., helping manufacture materials for the atomic bomb. 

After the war, he returned to selling pots and pans to sup- 
port his family, which grew to include a daughter and son. The 
Korean War interrupted his sales job, so he decided to make 
another change. 

"I was a born salesman, and I decided to go into some- 
thing that there would never be a shortage of — paper," he 
said, laughing. "A life insurance policy is paper, but what's on 
the paper is important." 

He joined the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. in 
Chattanooga, Tenn., and became one of the first two agents in 
that area to reach the Millionaire's Club for sales. He retired 
after 27 years with the company. 



£;*v 



V 







His time at Bryan made 
an indelible impression on his 
life. 

"I'm convinced my life 
would have been very differ- 
ent if it hadn't been for 
Bryan College. For example, I 
wouldn't have met my wife, 
and I probably wouldn't have 
been active in church much 
through the years, if it hadn't 
been for my experience at 
Bryan. 

"I feel good that Bryan 
has kept its motto of Christ 
above all, all these years," he 
said. "The college has done a 
terrific job sending people to 
the mission field and educat- 
ing students, regardless of 
what they are going into, to 
make a difference in the 
world." 

After his wife died, he 
sold some property and had 
assets available to invest. He 



was aware of Bryan's gift 
annuity program, which aids 
the college while the donor 
receives tax benefits plus a 
guaranteed income for life. 

"I thought, this is a good 
deal for me and a good deal 
for the college. Why not do 
it?" he said. 

As a result, Mr. Morring 
has been able to triple his 
income from that investment 
over what he was earning pre- 
viously, Development 
Director Jim Barth explained. 

And Mr. Morring said that 
could come in handy. 
"When I was in my 80's, I 
said I would try for 90. After 
I reached 90, my doctor and I 
agreed that I ought to shoot 
for 100." 

And part of that effort is 
the financial preparation he 
has made with his Bryan gift 
annuity.

S enter Field looked like it had been turned into a school 
playground rather than a collegiate baseball stadium this 
spring as the Bryan Lions traded in their "player" roles 
and became coaches. 

At the invitation of Coach Joel Johnson, teams from the 
Dayton Dizzy Dean Baseball League came to the college for 
clinics that offered instruction on hitting, fielding, throwing, and 
running fundamentals. Members of the Bryan baseball team 
took on the role of coaches, giving personal attention to the 
teams of 5- and 6-, 7- and 8-, and 9- and 10-year-old athletes 
from the community. 

"It was a great opportunity to share with the community we 
live in," junior Taylor Hasty said of the clinics. "The kids really 
seemed to enjoy it, and it was rewarding to see them get better 
in such a short period of time." 

At the same time, Coach Johnson was able to work with the 
Dizzy Dean coaches on drills to help their players. 

"The kids really loved being on the college field," Coach 
Johnson said. "We showed them where some of the guys had 
hit home runs, and they were in awe. My players really enjoyed 
the time as well." Another exciting aspect of the clinics was to

see the field full of players and their parents, building 
stronger relationships between the college and the 
community. 

Alan Smith, president of the Dayton Dizzy Dean 
Baseball League, was equally enthusiastic. 

"It was great. The kids loved it, the coaches loved 
it. As a coach myself, I really enjoyed seeing the col- 
lege players interacting with my team. This is some- 
thing we want to do again next year." 

While the clinics were designed to instruct young 
players on baseball fundamentals, Coach Johnson said 
it can have a benefit for his players as well. 

"As any teacher or coach knows, you have to be 
prepared to teach someone else. These clinics made 
our players stop and think about things that are pretty 
much automatic for them as college athletes. I hope 
teaching fundamentals will sharpen my players' atten- 
tion to the little things that can make them better ath- 
letes in the long run."

Dear Alumni, 



Greetings from your new Alumni Coordinator! 

My name is Warren Cole and as of this spring I am the new guy 
in the Bryan College Alumni Relations Office. I aim to change the 
direction of our Alumni Association. I have been looking at the past 
interactions of the alumni office and our alumni in hopes of devis- 
ing better ways to encourage alumni to be steadfast in Christ as they 
continue to make a difference in today's world. 

Every day I realize how much potential this school has; Bryan is 
an amazing college filled with amazing students, faculty, and staff 
which created the best alumni in America. And we all believe that 
Christ is above all. 

Things have changed since all of us went to school. Once there 
was an Octagon and White Chapel, and the cafeteria, library, and 
classrooms were in the same building. Because of a fire, the Lord 
blessed us with new buildings, and now a new entrance is on the 
way. This is our heritage, and we should be proud of it. Christ 
remains above all, and the Lord is continuing to bless us. 

The problem I've discovered is that alumni do not know what is 
going on with their alma mater. I have heard over and over again 
from alumni that they have no idea what is happening, but the desire 
to know is there. 

I want to focus on bridging the communication gap using 
resources we have here, and I also want to start up alumni chapters 
around the nation. If you're interested in being involved with creat- 
ing an alumni chapter in your area, please call me. I want to talk with 
you. 

No one can argue the fact that we have graduated from a college 
that has dramatically shaped our lives, and the foundations that were 
strengthened in our lives at Bryan College are impacting us daily. I 
aim to cultivate those foundations, continuing to build upon them, 
so that even our 50-year graduates will be able to say that Bryan is 
continuing to change and shape their lives. 

I invite you to join me in this effort. Start an alumni chapter. Call 
a classmate. Call, write, or email me (warren.cole@bryan.edu) and — 
together — let's see good things happen at Bryan College!

Bryan students minister to a country in need 



When the deadly December tsunami hit the shores of Thailand, Sri 
Lanka, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and other Eastern nations, most of 
us could only watch our televisions in sadness, praying for the millions 
of people so tragically affected. 

But for a group of Bryan College students, faculty and staff, watch- 
ing simply wasn't enough. 

During Spring Break, the group traveled across the globe to pro- 
vide help to the people of India and deliver a financial gift from the 
college to Word for the World, an indigenous Indian organization 
whose ministry focuses on villagers, lepers, slum dwellers, and the 
physically challenged. 

"We spent 10 days going into the makeshift homes of disaster vic- 
tims, talking with them, praying with them, sometimes crying with 
them, and sharing the gospel," said junior Amanda Held. "I feel 
encouraged by the fact that even after we have come home from India, 
we left having invested and contributed to a ministry that will be in 
Mandras long after the world has forgotten it and the relief organiza- 
tions have pulled out." 

Another trip to India is planned for the 
fall.
